Creating Societal Impact through Research
November 28 | 17:00 - 19:00kostenlos
Everywhere in the world, experts are working on improving the transfer of science to society. Increasingly, research councils no longer are merely satisfied with a promise of impact of new research ideas. Instead, nowadays an impact plan including strategies to involve societal stakeholders etc. is often asked for. Against this background, many universities have started to develop strategies for knowledge transfer.
These topics will be discussed by experts from Vienna and abroad during this event. The event addresses a wide range of professionals: knowledge exchange professionals, scientometricians, research councils and funding agency employees, policy makers, research services as well as researchers from all disciplines.
This event is organized in cooperation with the The Network for Advancing and Evaluating the Societal Impact of Science.
